athal, heavier rains, orange to turner falls, southwest new hampshire, weare to francis town and teterboro seeing heavier showers. lighter from manchester to hooksett and lighter for the drive in concord. you'll see the drift here, continuing this evening, so not a concern until later on tonight. that whole system spinning over the top of us, producing the showers out there, that moves eastward and pushes some on shore winds back toward us. we've been used to that lately. it will bring into the morning hours, particularly southeastern massachusetts during the morning. by the afternoon, the clouds break up, we're back to sunshine for most, and take a little more doing for you on cape cod and the islands, but there's sun for you in the forecast as well. your dinnertime temperatures, 59 in boston. 60 at plymouth and provincetown and 60's offer to the west. 68 in fitchburg. it was nice to get back to 70 though. so a couple showers or some patchy drizzle in the morning,
6:20 pm
coastline, the sun starting to pop out. we'll average 58 degrees across the area in the morning. so from those 50's, here's where we're going tomorrow afternoon. near the shore, onshore winds, only keeping you near 60 degrees, even with sunshine. a little warmer to the west, 61 out there in newton, for instance, into worcester county, upper 50's to mid 60's. fitchburg, 64 degrees tomorrow afternoon. and all eyes are on the tropics. our weather, we have to track those showers, but this, this is matthew, a category 4 hurricane with just incredible winds. that are going to push that water right up against the coastline. all the storm surge data that we get, really takes into consideration what the land is underneath the wait every, as well as the coastline that it's approaching. and it would send a surge about 7 to 10 feet toward the coast of haiti. i was surprised to see that, because typically i would think a bigger storm surge, in the bahamas, the way the water is there, the same storm to give a storm surge up to 15 feet.
6:21 pm
to get hit by a category 4, that's going to be devastating to the island. flooding, strong winds that will devastate the area. this comes through the bahamas, or at least forecast too. remember the center line is just the average. the tracks potentially can go west or east within this area, and by the time it gets toward the carolinas, on friday and into saturday, that's going to be the closest pass to the u.s. whether it comes inland to the west, or stays out to sea is still a big question beyond that. and the impacts for us would be determined by that. i'll save that for later. sunshine headed our way. back in a few minutes. we'll talk more about the spaghetti charts and i'll give you an idea of what my thinking is for impacts on us next weekend. >> mark: the longtime producer of boston's legendary july 4 esplanade shows is passing the baton. david newgar announced in july of 2017, the boston pops will take over managing the events. the independence day celebration
